I guess one of the things i'm looking at with this is finding ways to
try to minimize the points at which the Incubator PMC needs to
participate in day to day podling activities because its those that
can lead to the ISSUE03 type flair ups. The pTLP approach is an
interesting idea but an alternative might be to try to have most
podling contact be just via mentors, minimize the time incubating, and
have the Incubator PMC operate with the more hands off approach that
the board uses.

Agree about the sentence about reporting being out of place, i'd only
included that to try to placate anyone who may have been unhappy about
the notification removal. Lets remove the sentence here and move it up
the page to the section on Podling Status Reports, and while doing
that also look at your earlier suggestion of harmonizing the Incubator
podling reporting with the Board's guidelines for TLPs.
